Hawaii Five-0 Future/Relationships

Rumour has it that Rachel is going to be back with major news; she’s divorcing Stan. And they ask team Rachel or team Melissa. How about neither? And also, Catherine will be back at some point as well.

Rachel: she divorced him because she couldn’t handle being a cop’s wife, she then took his daughter 3000mi away and tried her best to keep them apart. She cheated on her husband with him, then lied and manipulated him about her pregnancy and when it didn’t work, she dropped him and went back to Stan; then it turns out that her baby really was Danny’s which meant that Rachel kept Danny from his son for three years and the *only* reason he found out was because Charlie was sick and needed help (guarantee if that wasn’t the case, then that would’ve remained a secret). Rachel and Danny are done with and over; let it stay that way, otherwise Danny just looks like a stupid fool for going back to her.

Melissa: sorry she was in an abusive relationship, but she put Danny’s life, and also Grace’s, at risk when she didn’t reveal that her ex might be after her. Imagine what would’ve happened if he had shown up when Grace was with them. Also, in the supposed three years they’ve been together, we only see her like once, but that could be forgiven considering we don’t see the other SOs that often either. However, Danny doesn’t take her to any important functions (Kono’s wedding comes to mind) and after two years he couldn’t tell her he loved her and I doubt that other than Grace and Eric, Melissa has met the other members of the Williams family (but Steve has, as well as the team). Honestly? I may not like her, but Melissa deserves better.

Catherine: her relationship with Steve was nothing more than a trading of sexual favours that they tried to make into more but didn’t work out. Catherine lied to him, more than once, and placed in danger and left him there where Steve came very close to losing his head, literally. She is and always will be an operative. She is basically Doris and that means that if she had stayed and accepted Steve’s proposal, then not only would’ve she have come to resented it and him but years down the line, she would’ve pulled a Doris (faking her death and leaving her family to deal with it). Even Alex thinks Steve would be a stupid fool to take Catherine back (and who knows? If the rumours about him leaving after season 8 are true, that could be a contributing factor).

Lynn: I don’t hate or like her because we barely have any interaction with the character but based on that, she deserves better than to be an afterthought​ and honestly, she and Steve don’t mesh well

What do you guys think?


I love how Melissa is being cute and smiley and Caity goes on an entire face journey in the background. I love them both so much


“I have had the privilege of meeting so many young girls that have visited set this season and I’m always blown away by their faces when they see the cape and the ’S’ and the whole costume and just how excited they are to be there. That is really moving and I always kind of… have to go to my trailer and cry a little bit.” [x]

okay listen. everyday, trying-to-fit-in kara kills me. the glasses, the flats, the argyle sweaters, it kills me. she is the embodiment of “too pure, too good” and it is really too much for me to handle. it’s all to try and blend in and seem insignificant, but guess what?? kara could be wearing camouflage and she would still stand out bc who smiles that much? whose eyes light up like that when they see potstickers for christ’s sake?? kara is so observant that she probably knows the birthdays of all the employees in the office at catco and gets them a card or a donut or something, and she notices because she cares so much about everyone. like she wants to make sure no one feels left out or forgotten and loves to make people feel special. she tries so hard to blend in but she’s too kind, too thoughtful, too bright to ever be anything but remarkable. and that has nothing to do with supergirl, that’s just kara being kara.

[TW 6B SPOILERS] According to someone who has the script for 6x20:

- Derek comes back because one of the Hales die.
- There’s a lot of Lydia, Stiles, Scott and Derek screentime.
- Stiles and Derek are in a scene with Scott. (I’m not sure if they’re in any others.)
- Stydia will be endgame. There is no rain kiss but they have boyfriend/girlfriend banter.
- Jackson comes back. - Mason and Corey are endgame.
- Derek gets a happy ending.
- There’s a flash forward and Scott is successful and married in it but they don’t say who he’s married to.
- Theo helps Liam’s pack, hence all the old characters coming back for one final battle.
- There will be no Kira, unfortunately.
- Episode is Hale centric.
- Melissa and Chris are also endgame.
- Parrish gets a final scene with the sheriff but his story really isn’t wrapped up, or something.
- There’s a flash forward.
- The ending is epic.

When Zack, along with the viewer, is initiated into the mysteries of Murphy in the pilot episode, we’re lead to believe that we’re seeing a pretty typical trip to school for Milo. But “The Doctor Zone Files” reveals that Murphy’s Law may vary: as Milo himself puts it, “It’s unpredictable!” Like a lot of claims made about Murphy’s Law (obviously, not everything that could go wrong does), this one’s pretty broad; multiple episodes have shown that Milo’s friend Melissa has developed a faculty for predicting when Murphy’s Law will strike, which indicates that it has a logic of its own. And on most days, at least, it seems that Milo can ride the bus with his fellow students in relative safety–we see him do so in “Worked Day.”

So what made the first day of school different? Well:

A new kid came in from out of town. He didn’t know about Milo’s condition. He talked to him in a friendly way and even accepted his handshake. Which–look at how the kids at the stop react. 

They’re worried about this poor sap who’s here indicating a clear willingness to befriend Milo Murphy. They’re not only worried about him, they’re potentially worried about how it’s going to affect them (notice how Bradley is clutching his backpack). 

I propose that Murphy’s Law overacted because, quite simply, Milo was on the verge of making a new friend, and the worst thing that could happen to him would be for that friend to be scared off.

And, see, this is nothing new. This happens every time Milo is put in a situation wherein a friendship could potentially form. In “Rooting for the Enemy” we find out that a girl named Joni, who sat next to Milo recently, only just got her cast off and is unwilling to try a second time. In the same episode, Mort has a friendly conversation with Milo and is promptly thrown headfirst over a ledge and into a pond: 

By the way, Joni does end up in Milo’s blast radius again when she sits directly behind him on the bus in “Worked Day”.

She looks a little nervous to me. Can’t blame the girl. She’s even closer to him than Melissa is!

…but she’s probably fairly safe, because, while she’s close to him, she’s not sitting next to him. The real danger lies in talking to him or associating with him in the way a friend would.

Melissa and Zack are hanging out with him, but they’re probably all right too–at this point, they’ve both been established as friends of Milo. Both of them have firmly and repeatedly refused to be put off, so while they’re still getting swept up in Murphy’s Law and still risking life and limb by being in its vicinity, it’s no longer headhunting either of them specifically. 

Here’s what really sells this one for me:

We’ve seen that Melissa is normally unafraid to be close to Milo, though she’s not above establishing an “adequate buffer zone.” In the pilot, she initially walks gladly up to her friend, apparently prepared to stand next to him as she might on a normal morning…but then she hesitates.

We see her take a moment to test her surroundings before announcing her decision to put some distance between herself and Milo. Milo’s response is a thumbs-up and a cheerful “Good call!”

My guess is that this is a situation that both of them are familiar with through long experience. Milo standing here chatting with the new guy is a clear danger signal for Melissa, just as it is for the others at the stop. Milo, though equally aware that he’s in for a more-than-usually deadly morning, is undeterred. With his characteristic optimism, he’s embracing this possible friendship despite the risk it’s going to involve, but that doesn’t mean he expects Melissa to do it. 

Zack rides out the storm and stays with Milo; at some point before the series started, Melissa had to make a decision to do the same thing. They’re the exceptions. The vast majority of people who came close to befriending Milo were unable to take the heat.

“erin, please.” 


We all portray Lena as being confident in her feelings with Kara - taking the lead, being aware of them, knowing they’re okay etc.

But really I feel like Lena’s actually completely lost when it comes to love. Not because she hasn’t dated or felt it, but because after Lex and her mom, she doesn’t trust herself to love anymore. Because she knows people change and they can change for the worse and she’s not sure if she can handle that again because it’s all she’s known and all she’s felt. So love is so much more complicated for Lena. They are layers and layers to her heart and she started feeling these things for Kara and it terrifies her to no end. Because Kara is good and safe and a literally walking ray of sunshine, but then so was Lex. So what’s stopping Kara from going down the same route?
